Description

Excerpt from Men Who Have Risen In like manner and for the same reason, men are always eager to hear the stories of the heroes; those who have overcome great difficulties, surmounted great obstacles, and won the race in the face of all kinds of discouragements. Men rejoice in the success of those who like Washington and Gladstone, start with many advantages, and instead of being indolent are stimulated to great exertion by great Opportunities; but they care most of all for the success of those who, like Lincoln, begin with nothing except the capital of character and capacity of work, and end at the very summit of usefulness and honor. In the careers of men of small beginnings and great endings there is a touch of magic, a bit of the old fairy-tale of the childhood of the race.
